My 2 kids are both girls and hubby wants a boy. My eldest daughter is now 12 years old and the youngest daughter is turning 6 this coming February 4. Me and hubby are thinking if its about time to have a new baby at the same time if we are ready financially. Is it really true that "the more the merrier".
Right now we are considering factors like children's needs, financial concerns, my health, and career stability.
Having a baby requires extra care and attention. But I guess it won't be a big problem to us since my youngest daughter is turning 6 years old. Getting pregnant and having a baby is sure punch a hole in our pocket. We asked ourselves if we are ready financially, we have savings but we are preparing for my youngest daughter's third eye operation next year. With regards to my health, I have not experienced any serious illness for the past 6 years. But I have talked to a pediatrician and she advised me that incase I plan to have another baby I need to have a Rubella vaccine months before getting pregnant. This is to protect the baby from congenital cataract like what happened to my youngest daughter.
I guess more conversation between me and hubby before we can finally decide. We need to carefully plan everything.
